Hookworms, roundworms and whipworms are intestinal parasites that live and grow inside your pets intestines. There may be the loss of appetite, vomiting, or weight loss; sometimes the adult worm is visable in the pets stool or they may vomit the worms. Some pets show no signs. Your veterinarian will recommend a treatment to eliminate and help prevent intestinal parasites. These infections may be passed from animal to animal and animal to human. Preventions include: puppies and kittens dewormed; keep pets on preventitive programs; keep outside area free from animal waste; and wash hands after cleaning up feces.
Canine and Felines develop heartworm disease when the pet is bitten by a mosquito that is carrying the heartworm larvae. While it is feeding, it is depositing the larvae which eventually gets into the pets bloodstream. Within six to seven months, the larvae have migrated to the heart and lung vessels. Adult heartworms can grow to 10-12 inches. Your veterinarian will advise you how to treat heartworm disease and the most importantly, heartworm prevention.
